Default Is this worth it?

A 2010 40th Z with 38k miles. Will it have problems on me? How long will this car last me as a daily driver with stock engine? The car is being sold and has some weird aftermarket intakes on it. But looks flawless other than that. And carfax records says its 100% clean.

How much are they asking for? 2010 still has the steering lock issue that was recently recalled. I don't see any reason it wouldn't last you a long time as a daily driver. The engine has been reliable so far.

weird aftermarket intakes? Long tube or short ram?

They did not specify a price. And even the 40th's have steering lock issue?

Avg is SUPPOSE to be about 12,000mi a yr (according to some survey somewhere out there) you do the math.

And i don't think anyone has gotten up to 130k miles yet. I could be wrong.

Some early VQ's on 95/96 Maxi's are still on the original motors with well over 200k running good, if you take care of it it will last!
